Seven skaters from the Comox Valley Skating Club earned six medals at the recent Vancouver Island Regional Championships in Victoria.
Jane Schaffhauser picked up her second gold medal in as many competitions and now holds the titles of Vancouver Island Invitational champion and Vancouver Island Regional champion.
Peyton Meiers moved up to the Novice category where the competition gets much tougher as it is the entry level for skaters vying for the opportunity to compete in the Canadian championships. She decided to jump right in and put her new short program to the test in front of the judges. “Peyton placed sixth and now has two months to polish and prepare for her next event,” said CVSC coach Greg Ladret.
Emma Cullen added to her medal haul with silver in the Juvenile Women U14 category. Nicole Webster, Isabel Cortez and Abby Kachkowski were each awarded bronze in STAR 2 in their respective age groups. “This was Abby’s first competition ever,” Ladret noted. Michael Robert picked up bronze in the STAR 3 Boys event.
